1) I cannot find the nfs configuration parameters I specified with lb config inside the live.cfg file. I tried deleting the whole directory and starting over from scratch after a live-boot update in wheezy. Same results.
2) mount fails saying it can't read /etc/fstab because it doesn't exist. I'd imagine if I edit my live.cfg to put in the para,enters as you did, I will no longer get this error.
3). Just as you noted in the mailing list, doing an exit two times at the fail prompt causes a kernel panic.
So yes, identical situation.
I forgot to mention it, but I am building an amd64 live net boot image.
I've had a similar issue (I think) and it was reported on the list by Jim Richardson here:
I haven't been able to resolve it and mailed my own follow-up to that message to the list here:
Can you confirm two things for me?
- live.cfg has parameters netboot=nfs and nfsroot=192.168.1.100:/srv/debian-live
- Can you execute the following commands successfully at the fail prompt?
>mount -o nolock -o ro 192.168.1.100:/srv/debian-live /live/image
The first will confirm that we have the same setup as used in the above mailing list post (I think, since I'm getting the same error). The second will confirm that we can all manually set up our networks, mount our nfs paths, and view their contents but that it isn't happening automatically.
I'm more than happy to provide any additional information I can or help debugging this, but I've yet to receive a response from someone who can point me in the right direction.
